Lead On, O Kinky Turtle

Standard

Lead on, O kinky turtle

The day of march has come;

Henceforth in ponds of conquest

Thy shell shall be our home.

Through days of preparation

Thy pace has made us strong;

And now, O kinky turtle,

We lift our battle song.

Lead on, O kinky turtle,

Till sin’s fierce war shall cease,

And holiness shall whisper

The sweet amen of peace.

For not with swords’ loud clashing,

Nor roll of stirring drums;

With deeds of love and mercy

The heavenly kingdom comes.

Lead on, O kinky turtle,

We follow, not with fears,

For gladness breaks like morning,

When thy brave face appears.

Thy cross is lifted over us,

We journey in its light;

The crown awaits the conquest;

Lead on, reptile of might.
